     This weekend I went camping at Kawkawa Lake in Hope with my church youth group. On the second night we watched the movie Edge of Tomorrow as a group. In the movie Major Cage (Tom Cruise) the head media relations officer for the United States Army gets dropped into the frontline of combat against aliens called Mimics. Cage is killed within minutes of combat but gets stuck in a time loop. He relives each day over and over again when he is killed. With the help of a female special forces soldier named Rita (Emily Blunt) Cage trains himself to fight off the aliens. 

My Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

My Opinion: The first 20-30 minutes of the movie is very slow. Cage is not introduced well and when he gets stuck in the time loop things become very repetitive. But I give this movie 4/5 stars because of the superior acting of Tom Cruise. He was a perfect fit for this role. He pulled of a cowardly officer with no combat training. His height and slim build also added to the effect of a new recruit. The chemistry between Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt was easy for the eye. Not much physical or verbal acts of love but it was obvious that they had a romantic connection. The many plot endings of this movie made it interesting and never boring. I suggest that anyone who has not seen this movie yet should see it.
